Tuesday at home
reports of snow in the PNW (Pacific Northwest) here in our corner of Portland Oregon have been interesting to track-it snowed yesterday-after I arrived at work and before I left at the end of my day. Fun to watch from the window at work-but-no big deal to me. I told my boss I was taking work home, in case today was too nasty to drive in-not that I can't drive in snow-it's all those other drivers that *think* they can that bother me. In truth, I can work much faster and easier at home at this stage I am currently in - no need for the work environment-the hustle and bustle, the non-stop chatting, phones ringing, and someone being loud about something. They are a large group of women I work with-many "youngsters" the loud vocal type that have no patience with customers and not finding what they want instantly-and boy can they express some nasty things.
I am good at turning a deaf ear to it all and just keeping my nose buried in my paperwork. It's such a blessing to be working at home today-the quiet is so delightful. I put Zoe's bed in here with me and she is great company. I have my own music playing and wearing warm play clothes is comfy! I made an early start too-without the time wasted in driving to work, you feel you can see much greater progress. And, I can make a second pot of coffee whenever I want.
Yes, it's a real treat to be home working today. I will take time out later in the afternoon for a scheduled downtown appointment. The roads are fine and it should be a snap to drive. I want to go into the office tomorrow and make the most of the computer time I will need by then. Thursday it is sounding like we will be hit hard with freezing ice and such-but who knows?
On the quilting front: my nephew was thrilled with his quilt and now all quilts he sees, he says Aunt Cher made that! LOL...too cute. I am in the middle of making Christmas socks for my granddaughter, my son (an extra one as he is away from home) and one for his girlfriend. I need trim that I don't have-otherwise they are sewn and ready to give. I still need to finish cutting for my scrap project, plus have a few other quilts clamoring to be made. Isn't that how it always is? the next few quilts are always waiting their turn...never a dull quilty moment here!
If I can squeeze time into my day, I hope to pick up that trim - once they are done, I promise photos. In the meanwhile, I am slowly catching up on blog reading during my breaks :-), another bonus of working at home-my own computer and unlimited access to the internet.
